As CEO and President of SIMS Software, Michael Struttmann leads the implementation of the company’s vision and strategy, worldwide business development initiatives, and overall operations. Michael is a veteran of the enterprise security and software industries, bringing nearly two decades of experience in executive positions. Prior to joining SIMS Software in 2016, he served as Senior Vice President and General Manager, North America, for Powa Technologies. Michael spearheaded the launch of the company’s mobile and tablet point-of-sale technologies in the North American market, encompassing sales channel strategies, distribution, pricing models, and overall product direction.
Michael also served as District Manager, Enterprise Accounts for RSA, a Dell Technologies business and global cybersecurity leader with over 90% market share in the Fortune 500. His team of enterprise sales executives consulted with clients and sold proprietary solutions for business risk, fraud prevention, cybercrime, identity and access management, and more for RSA’s largest customers.
Michael’s experience also includes senior leadership positions in the payments industry. During his tenure as Vice President and Director, Global Market Development, for Semtek Innovative Solutions Corp., Michael led the team that successfully took the company’s patented credit card encryption concept to market.

Michael joined Verifone as Vice President of Sales, Global Security Solutions, and established an industry standard in credit card security by contracting eight of the top 11 U.S.-based payment processors. He also founded a consortium of payment industry stakeholders to address ongoing opportunities and challenges in credit card security.
